Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #416

Messy Messy Fail - My car, oh my goodness.  My excuse is that during the school year I am transporting to young boys and now a baby multiple times a day.  The snacks I find stashed under the seats is disgusting.......

Tidy Victory - I finally collected seeds from the fun pumpkins I've had sitting on the back deck since November! :). I got tiny orange pumpkins, small white, yellow & green, goblin and square pink pumpkin seeds.  Now I need to figure out if I should pre-sprout them or just plant then directly outside.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #415

Messy Messy Fail - We have a mudroom at our house with tall and deep cubbies for each person.  Although they are very cute and convenient for storing everyone's stuff, they do not have a door to hide all of the stuff.  And they turn into bottomless pits that belongings are stuffed into.  Need to come up with a plan.

Tidy Victory - I have suddenly become super inspired to watch a particular Youtuber The Minimal Mom and get rid of more stuff!  It's funny - so many of the points she makes are common sense yet we don't automatically think that way!  She has excellent tips for how to get rid of stuff quickly and efficiently.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #414

Messy Messy Fail - Tardy to the party again, my bad!

Tidy Victory - Our winter sowing project is completed!  We planted snapdragons, marigolds, echinacea and morning glory in milk jugs of potting soil outside.  We are VERY excited to see if we are able to successfully grow some annual flowers to add to our garden this year!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #413

Messy Messy Fail - The pumpkins that I was supposed to harvest seeds from for planting continue to waste away under the snow.  We just got something like 2.5 feet of fresh snow, and it's not going anywhere too soon!

Tidy Victory - I was totally inspired by Laura at @gardenanswer to try some winter sowing - essentially you plant winter hardy seeds inside milk jugs without a cap and put them outside in the snow to start growing.  I picked up some marigold and cosmo seeds at the Dollar Tree to start!  I'm going to put those together on Sunday while it warms up to a balmy 17 degrees F.
